TCT PROJECT

TFC is working closely with the Transcaucasian Trail NGO on the construction of a new long-distance hiking trail across Armenia and Georgia, which will eventually give hikers the opportunity to experience a 1,500 km journey from the Iranian border of Armenia to the Black Sea coast in Georgia, taking in all the cultural and geographical diversity this historically significant region has to offer.

 

Bordering Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, the region is one of the most biologically, culturally and linguistically diverse regions in the world – yet one that few have had the chance to explore.

 

During 2017, TFC & TCT worked together to build and maintain 83.2 km of trail from the town of Dilijan to Kahacahrdzan Village, from Parz Lake south to Goshavank, and from Dilijan north to the Haghartsin Monastery.

 

During 2018, With the collaboration of AGBU and TCT, TFC built and restored 27.9 km of moderately difficult trail, from Gomk to Martiros.

 

During 2019, work continued on the TCT in the Vorotan Canyon, in partnership with the SST and TCT, 12.5 km of trails were restored.

 

The trails are also suitable for advanced mountain bikers and trail runners.

we worked on 123.6 km in total
